"I Am Proud Of You" Is Finest Tribute A fond parent may be proud of his child, whether or not the child has done much ^x to deserve it. But when a child, grown to adulthood, is proud of his parent, you can be sure that pride has been earned. A woman read- * er writes: "My mother, who is In I / her seventies, i» Kulh Millet! to have a birthday soon and all of her children are planning to get together to make it a real celebration. "We are all so proud ol her and we want to let her know how we feel about her. However, it is difficult to express. "From time to time you nave written columns about the wonderful qualities of some older women and I wonder if you could possibly send me some of them. "We would like to give them to her—lor they say better than we can just how we feel about our mother." I'll try to do better than that. I'll make this column about one mother—yours. For I am sure that, whenever her children read a piece about the fine qualities of a woman who has met life courageously all along the way and say, "That's mother"—that woman must be a wonderful woman. Please show your mother this column, for it tells not what I have said about some other woman or about some group of women, but what you have said about your own mother. And if any other person who reads this column has often thought but found it difficult to Exercise Can • Help Shape Of Legs By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Women who lack perfect legs look at those women who are well- endowed and sigh. Most of them imagine there is nothing that can be done. If legs are bad; well, resign yourself, is the best attitude. Actually, something can be done to change the shape of the legs, although the bony structure and muscles remain pretty much the same. If the calves are overdeveloped, there are stretching exercises that can be done to smooth them out. If they're skinny, they can be built up. The impression of a good-looking leg comes from the contrast between the calf and the ankle. About four or five inches difference between the two is what you should strive for. To build up your calves, try this: stand with one side toward the wall, with that hand resting on the wall. Rise up high on the toe nearest the wall, letting the outside leg hang. Then lower yourself to flatfoot, putting the outside foot back in place. Repeat this for the other leg. Don't tire yourself, but do as much as you feel like each day. To slim your calves, try this: Sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you. Keeping your knees straight, lean forward and grasp one toe with each hand. Pull on the toes gently while you count to ten. Relax between pulls. Don't be violent about it, but keep up" the. easy stretching of these muscles. say "I'm proud of you" to his own mother, perhaps he can hand her this column with the words, "That is just how I feel about you." For certainly no one in the world more deeply appreciates the words "I'm proud of you" than does a mother when those words come from her own child.
